Bacon Avocado Soup is a low carb dieter’s dream soup. Broth-y, bacony, yummm! This might be our favorite Keto soup, ever.
Bacon Avocado Soup is a unicorn of soups. By that we mean it is the unexpected combination of flavors with the ability to be served hot or cold. We personally prefer it to be served slightly warm but really does work wonderfully as a gazpacho if you personally like chilled soups. I’ve never really been on the chilled soup bandwagon myself but I know many people who do.
How do you make Bacon Avocado Soup?
This soup is fairly straightforward to make. You’ll need: Chicken stock, cilantro, garlic powder, avocados, lime, bacon, salt and pepper.
To start, you’ll need to bring your chicken stock to a low boil. In a blender, you’ll mix your cilantro, garlic powder, avocados, lime juice and 1 cup of the chicken stock. Blend until smooth, then add to the stock on the stove.
Next you’ll add your cooked bacon pieces. Stir your soup well and salt and pepper to taste. Be sure to add your salt a little bit at a time to get the flavor just right.

How long is Bacon Avocado Soup good for?
I would strongly advise this be a ‘consume-the-same-day’ type of soup. If you have any leftovers transferring to an airtight container and all a little bit extra lime and store in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
You also can opt to freeze this soup. I personally would go this route if there are any leftovers. Avocado actually freezes fabulously.
We recommend using something we find very helpful when it comes to freezing soup. These Souper Cubes (affiliate link) are the bomb! These will allow you to freeze portions of soup and then place into freezer bags. Your soup will be good for around 3 months in the freezer. To thaw, place a portion in the refrigerator in a freezer bag/propped up in a bowl to avoid spillage. If you are a fan of gazpacho bacon avocado soup this is fab!

The Best Keto Soups Options
Soups are fantastic on a Keto diet because they can offer a hearty meal that helps keep you feeling full even without carbs. What’s better than a warm and cozy tummy? The answer is not much.
We love our Bacon Avocado Soup because it is packed with healthy fats and so much flavor. I truly have been thinking after making this again how it’s so good that it could easily be a Fat Bomb SOUP! Lol we’ve got cheesecake fat bombs , chocolate pb fat bombs , chocolate fat bombs and so many others here that I never thought of a fat bomb being in connection with a soup!
There are a few other Keto soup contenders that we also keep in the rotation.
We absolutely have a love of Keto Instant Pot Soups, especially when they bring a traditional homemade soup into the fast and furious lane. For this, we recommend the most classic soup, ever. Check out our Keto Chicken Soup Recipe (Instant Pot Recipe).

What to Serve With Low Carb Bacon Avocado Soup
Naturally, eating Keto is a whole new world in terms of eating and carbs consciousness. This means you can’t just pile on the crackers or start dipping in traditional breads for your soup companions. Have no fear, your soup eating experience can still include those, but with a low-carb twist.
Instead of crackers, you have options that are Keto friendly to put on your soup or eat with it, if you prefer. We absolutely LOVE Parmesan Cheese Crisps for this. The flavor pairs well with both the bacon and the avocado in our soup. Just be aware that the saltiness can be a little much, which means you may want to salt your soup a little less to taste if you’re planning to bring this cheese crisps into the equation.
If you are a lover of all things garlicky goodness, garlic bread also goes well with our soup. Enter our easy Keto garlic bread, perfect for a culinary sidekick. Whether you are opting to dip in your soup or just eat along with, garlic goes nicely with the savory and slightly salty flavors of our soup.
HOW MANY NET CARBS IN OUR BACON AVOCADO SOUP
8 Net Carbs per serving of our Bacon Avocado Soup. It’s a little high for what it but is since avocado naturally is higher in carbs. However, the fat avocado provides is actually fantasticcccc for macros. Fat bomb soup? Is that a thing? We are making it a thing lol
